     Only then can the roots can go deep into one's life, just as Paul encourages in chapter two of the book of Colossians.  It is so hard to live a consistent life of faith with all the contrary messages we are exposed to each day. 

     Appeals for our time and money, and the distractions in life demand our limited energy and interest.  We must determine and then pay attention the priorities in our life.  Only then will we hear, believe, be saved, and bring other into contact with the seed containing good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

      Most likely, you’ve heard the parable taught by Jesus of the sower who scattered seed on four different types of soils.  The hard path, the rocky ground, the soil that was full of thorns and weeds, and then the beautiful soil that was cultivated and deep.  

     All four types of ground were given the seed of the gospel and, expectedly, four very different results.  Most likely you know or can call people to mind who resemble these soils – perhaps even loved ones. 

     Thomas Q. adds an interesting slant to the implications of these four types of soil.  He will show that in addition to the soils representing individuals who first hear the gospel – that at times these four types of soil can also be present in the life of faith that a Christian lives. 

     Why do people respond to the Gospel so - differently? 

     How about Predestination? 

     And where does Free Will fit in? 

      This lesson, “The Soil Makes the Difference” has its text is found in the New Testament book of Matthew, chapter 13, verses 1 and 2.






  Parable Series Bible Study


Stories are incredibly important in every culture and era.  Jesus frequently taught through story or parable.  Sometimes relating difficult aspects of the Kingdom of God and issues of faith, to familiar tasks or events the listener is used to.  And it was through these stories or parables that individuals were able to deal with truth, without being overwhelmed by that truth. 

Today, Thomas Q. Robbins continues his lessons in the New Testament book of Matthew and we come to another parable relating to farming.  After Jesus told this parable and then explained it, he asked those present to “Listen!”  We trust you are ready to do just that right now.  It may not be easy though, as Jesus relates some difficult truths to hear.  There are four questions Thomas Q. will ask you to consider as you listen to the message, “Wheat and Weeds.”

Something To Consider

God used cosmic events and entered into historical events in the early years of his revelation to mankind but that general revelation was incomplete.   Not until He came to earth as a little baby, in a humble setting, did God complete what he intended.  He revealed his will for the salvation of the world through his son.   Jesus was both flesh and God.  He entered into the history of mankind and was seen and heard as "one of us."  He came to earth, not to condemn the world but that the world through His plan and person could be reconciled and have a personal relationship with him. (1 John 3:16)   -Thomas Q.
